Opinion | Can China and the US pursue virtuous competition, rather than vicious rivalry, to avoid Cold War 2.0?

As Joe Biden’s administration takes its cue from Donald Trump’s anti-China policy, the walls being erected range from investment controls to boycott calls. The G7’s infrastructure plan, in response to China’s Belt and Road Initiative, is just the latest sign of increasing rivalry.

Opinion | How the US, under Trump, has led the charge to weaken international rule of law

In the past, the US made great contributions to the world. Today, Trump seeks to ‘make America great again’ by destroying law and order at the international community’s expense. Sadly, American interests are likely to continue to win out.
